and that has grown to about $7 million a year. and the final amount is the city's rainy day reserve. the city enacted rainy day reserve about ten years ago and the threshold for depositting to that reserve is when we have a higher-than-expected revenue. and we put that money away for a rainy day during the economic downturn. and in fact what has occurred is that the city has now been able to withdraw from the rainy day reserve because the threshold that was set in the charter is very rigorous. however, the threshold to the schools is not nearly as rigorous. in fact, schools don't even need to have a cut from their allocation from the state in order to draw from the rainy day reserve. they just have to be below a formula that specifies what the cost of living adjustment should be. the cost of living adjustment for the school is rather generous compared to the c.p.i., for example, consumer price index. so the schools have been able to withdraw from the rainy day reserve 25% of the balance in the reserve. so the first year was $19 million withdrawal and $25, 6 and and then we're budget

and east bay would not share. would you support san francisco using city taxpayer dollars to pay mtc for the cost of providing free muni service to young people in san francisco? in other words, if mtc isn't willing to do it on its own, should the city be paying more money into mtc to get the service out of mtc? >> as a last resort. that would be certainly the last way of funding it that i would look at. there is a continuity problem between the different transportation agencies that make it a little bit unworkable. at this present time i think one of the ways to deal with the issue is to see if the nuts and bolts of it can be tweaked a little bit to make it into a workable solution. maybe that may take a little bit more time, but i don't think as a sort of knee-jerk reaction we need to put the burden on taxpayers. with that being said it's vitally important for people to get around and especially those who can't afford and if you are a young person, i think that is a very important consideration as well. again, the focus should be on tweaking the nuts and bolts of continuity issue t

and how city partners helped us out of a very deep hole and continue to help keep us afloat and offer services to our students. i think another thing nancy wamack could maybe refresh us on is maybe that if the november ballot measures do not pass, we the governor has talked about additional school days cut. nancy, would you like to elaborate on that number, please? >> sure, commissioner. in the final version of the budget they changed the particular item to allow for an additional 15 days per year that could be cut rather than across 15 days the cross two years in january and may is version. state is now allowing up to 20 days per year to be cut from the school and from the school year, which is obviously atrocious. >> right. that would mean one month of school not being in session. this is really the state recommendation on how we should balance our budget is cut one month of instructions. that is just crazy and inexcusable. but i want to speak a little bit about what extra funds might do for our students, it's projected in 2014, 20% of students will not be graduating. they are on tr

immediately, they would not have been in that position. unfortunately, the way city governments work, if the money is not there and you can't close with very short time frame of due diligence, it is not going to happen. even as you get down the peninsula there are multiple users who would jump at the opportunity to find, one, a building of this size. 250,000 square feet building. two, a building that size on two acres. most will sit on eight acres. so the extra land * ten is driving some of the values up. the transaction james is talking about with dbi was formerly amb building on spruce. they moved into a 177,000 foot portion of an industrial building the sfo -- you know, san francisco's airport operation had leased prior to. their rent is significant more than the rent on this deal is. so the value in the market is there. that deal was negotiated three, four years ago. that lack of supply is what drives value. that is anything in the world. whether it is a commodity, food, precious gems, whatever it is. that is what is driving the value. i understand the concept of let's take more time to

of han and muslim china with its ethnic and religious minorities. in the city of lanzhou. but lanzhou's location-- and its future-- on this frontier have much to do with the region's physical geography and naral resources. ( blowing heavily ) narrator: for centuries in this part of china, rafts like this were an important means of transportation. made of sheepskin, inflated and tied together, these rafts, called yangpi fazi, navigated the huang he, or yellow river. by looking only at the huang he, you might think lanzhou is a wet place. in fact it only receives about 12 inches of rain a year. geographer chai yangwei, in the green, follows these farmers to see how they cope with such low rainfall. peculiar to agriculture in this area, these are called "stone fields." a thin layer of stones is spread over the surface of the field to hold in moisture. stone fields can be used for about eight years. constant upkeep is necessary, however. this plot is two years old. the farmers are adding fertilizer. if the soil becomes mixed with the stones, the efficiency of a stone field decreas

come to know and love this city and its park and come to know my neighbors in my neighborhood all the better. i have experienced in many volunteer positions, including volunteering with the san francisco public schools and also with the humane society. i trained one dog colley to be a pet therapy dog and we went to a nursing home regularly and spread canine joy. i am interested in this position because i would like to be a voice for my neighbors, my community for our pets, and also for the wildlife that also come to appreciate more and more thanks to our dogs and spending time in the park. the birds and coyotes and other animals as far as issues that concern me specifically, i don't know what positions have been or things have been before you recently. there is certainly a balance between the want and desires of dog owners, all pet owners and mainly families with young children. i think that our city is big enough and beautiful enough to allow everyone the space and freedom to enjoy it as i do with my family. so, again, thank you for your consideration and for your time. >> thank

specifically here in the city. and we also discussed some of the challenges that are facing not only the city and county of san francisco, but the other jurisdictions as the region moves forward with its transportation plan. as you probably are aware in your agenda today, we will have later in the agenda a presentation about the san francisco transportation plan, which is actually the long-range vision for transportation investment by the authority here in the city and county of san francisco. that plan is mandated by state law and its purpose is to really figure out what the transportation needs for the city long-term are. and, so, i think it's important for us to begin the discussion of what those needs are, what the future looks like, and what the challenges in meeting the needs that the city has and will have, what those challenges will be. we need to think about this issue and specifically focus on ways in which we can bring revenue into the system, the kinds of investments that need to be made not only by the county transportation authority, but other agencies like the san

if you follow these rules the city will look at it with favor. we are skeptical of the bargain. on the one answeredcertain requirements are placed; on the other there is certainty of development. here we are on an appeal of the pmd which is intensely frustrating; this appeal defines the words frivolous and spurious. to appeal an aos is the tail wagging the dog. and at an intersection laid out at the nineteenth century. this project fits in with the neighborhood; it is an excellently design project, urbanistic, should be approved and it is frustrating beyond belief to come back again and again for projects that are compliant and do make the design changes, meet the design criteria that the city says it wants and there is still always another opportunity to appeal the project. please deny the appeal and approve the project. thank you. >> marius starky, also board member of the mdna. b i would like to talk about the density of this buildingthat is going to create more problems of traffic in that area. i am the manager of the building very near this project; i've been in my building fo

roughly the size of california. this physical geography has contributed to densely populated cities, and made japan one of the most highly urbanized countries in the world. over 80% of its population lives in urban areas. tokyo is japan's largest city. as the capital, it is the focus of most legal, pitical, and economic activities in the nation. most large corporations have their headquarters here. everything tends to concentrate in tokyo. 32 million people, or one out of every four japanese live within a 30-mile radius. while tokyo casts a large shadow, it covers only three percent of the total land mass of japan. land prices here have skyrocketed. a booming economy in the 1980s and early 1990s saw profits go into real estate speculation, contributing to a bubble of inflated values. affordable housing was in short supply. more and more people began moving out to the suburbs to fulfill their dream of owning a home. by the mid-90s, japan hit an economic slump and thasian economic crisis of 1997 hit. the bubble burst and land prices began to decline, but not by much. housing prices in toky
